False Creek Tennis Club

Wayne Lind Charity Event 2019

Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to the information page for the Wayne Lind Mixer event. Wayne was instrumental in starting the False Creek Tennis Club over 30 years ago, and each Fall we honour the memory of Wayne and his contributions by holding the Wayne Lind Charity Event. Wayne worked at FCCC and was active with Special Olympics as well as the St Paul’s Hospital Foundation.

 

This year, the Wayne Line Charity Event will take place at the three courts beside the False Creek Community Centre, on Saturday September 28 from noon-4 pm. There is no official entry fee through our website, but we ask that you sign up (through our website, selecting Mixers under the Members tab, or https://www.falsecreektennisclub.com/mixers) so that we can organize the matches and have enough snacks and food. 

 

As well, while there is no official entry fee, we do ask that participants contribute to a charity in Wayne’s memory. We are recommending that you contribute $25 to the Community Youth Tennis Foundation, at https://www.gifttool.com/donations/Donate?ID=2218&AID=3571&TrackId=3558&Fund=Community%20Youth%20Tennis%20Fund . Contributing at this link will get you a tax receipt for your donation.

 

(The Community Youth Tennis fund is hosted through the Vancouver Foundation: Most young players develop their passion for the game on public tennis courts in the community, learning the game in a fun, social setting. This fund supports the development of youth tennis at the community and neighbourhood level providing youth opportunities to participate in and enjoy tennis programs. Tennis BC has programs that donate rackets, balls and learn to play equipment to help keep kids healthy, active and playing for life. Contributions made to this fund are eligible for tax receipts.)
